Gamefly disappoints

As you know, I love Netflix. On their recent price change, I have no problem with (Sure I wish it would have stayed the same price) the value exceeds its cost by probably 2x.

After seeing all the advertising for Gamefly, I thought this would be great for the boys. They love video games and with fall coming this would be a good source of entertainment. One thing I missed, the shipping times are so long that the cost well exceeds the value. Sure, I live in a "Remote" area, however over a week in shipping (Mostly due to handling) does not meet my expectations.

Guess we will have to rent locally.

Trimming down the noise.

Over the last couple of weeks I have made it a point to unsubscribe to all the emails that come in that are not really important. It has been amazing the quantity of these. Newsletters, blogs and such (Not that you would ever want to unsubscribe to this blog). It has substantially reduced the inbox size. I would highly recommend this to anyone. I will tell you that it does add a couple of steps in the morning (The over night traffic to your inbox) however the rewards are great.
